Introduced by Saara Lamberg

The Finnish Tuuli grew up in an oppressively religious and abusive family and in the shadow of her angelic twin sister. She embarks on a journey to the other side of the world, Australia, to find her true identity. Curious of nudity and sexuality, she becomes a nude model for art classes. She seems to use people to her own advantage and the good boy Thomas gets left behind when she meets the rough but charismatic chainsaw sculptor Ben. Her innocent surface starts revealing sordid cracks and the good intentions of the people she meets become a graveyard for her twisted delusions of grandiose. Fascinating, her film has been compared with works David Lynch, Roman Polanski and the Coen Brothers.
